Our Roots of Rockingham team are delighted to present artist Kathryn Parsons in Old Sulehay.

Kathryn is providing pottery plaque making workshops in Ring Haw Field Station, complemented with a walk in the woodlands and clearings of Old Sulehay to gather inspiration with kind permission of the BCN Wildlife Trust.

The workshop will include a walk to look for botanical inspiration, discussions of key, demonstrations of how to shape, texture and join the porcelain. Participants will make flat plaques imprinted with plants and build up 3D elements to create imaginary wildflowers inspired by the ones we’ve seen and learnt about.

Their work will then be taken away to dry and fire in Kathryn’s kiln, then delivered to Fineshade a few weeks later in named boxes for the participants to collect.

This is a free event but booking essential as spaces are limited.

There is a choice of two workshops:

Morning Workshop 9:30-12:30am
Afternoon Workshops 1:30-4:30pm
